If I am to judge +Hannoversche knowledge of cyber-security based on them disabling the paste function in password fields.. Well, that's a big fail right there (http://www.troyhunt.com/2014/05/the-cobra-effect-that-is-disabling.html). Their developers failed the "Now hang on a minute!" test.

And you can't work around it by disabling JS either, as they use some arcane Ajax function to analyze the text field on every value change to actually submit the form.

So here we go again: Open developer tools, copy the password input field id into the JavaScript console, set value to be my new 20 char generated password. Repeat for the *sigh* confirmation field. Submit. Thanks for forcing me to waste my time setting a secure password properly.

With +Mozilla Firefox there is an easier way though. In about:config, turn off dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled

I love this stuff. And chocolate.
“Slim by Chocolate!” the headlines blared. A team of German researchers had found that people on a low-carb diet lost weight 10 percent faster if they ate a chocolate bar every day. It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...

Summary: Not the best boarding house for people with small children, or in general. We (a couple w/ baby) stayed here for a week as it's quite close to our family in Berlin. There are however several "pensions" on the same street, and in retrospect we should rather have tried another one. We paid 50 euros a night, 50 of which had to be transferred up front as a deposit. Quality: The first thing that struck us upon entering the yard of the house is that it is very chaotic and messy. Inside the room, we found filthy shelves, a microwave that hadn't been cleaned in ages, and balls of dust under the beds. The room was serviced every day, but the floors were not cleaned, and we reckon all they did was to take out the trash. The shower drain was nearly fully clogged upon arrival. Facilities: The room was small, about the size of a hotel room. There were twin beds that could not be connected properly, and this was a hassle for us as we had a 9-month old baby sleeping between us. Even though the owners informed us in advance that there wouldn't be a problem bringing our baby there, they offered no baby bed or baby chair. Furthermore, the entrance to the apartment was behind some steep steps in the yard, making it near impossible for a single parent to traverse it with a pram. There was a huge TV-set in the room, and even though we didn't use it much, it was somewhat ironic to see only a handful of channels available. The room had a tiny kitchen with an adequate fridge, coffeemaker, micro-wave oven and a kettle, but no stove or oven. The shower had some inconveniantly placed hot-water pipes that I managed to burn my arm on every time I took a a shower. There's no Internet available. Service: We didn't interact much with the owners apart from the day where we managed to lock ourselves out of the apartment. When the owner realized we had left the keys in the lock on the inside, we had to pay 150 euros for getting a locksmith to open it. Overall it was a pretty cheap deal, but at this price level I had expected properly cleaned rooms, as well as some upfront honesty on the keylocks and baby issues.
